Amanda Kugler
Amanda Kugler
Amanda is a licensed insurance agent who has operated an insurance agency since 2009. After opening an independent agency in 2015, Amanda has found her niche working with multiple carriers to present her clients with the best coverages available to them. With an expertise in commercial insurance, Amanda enjoys working with business owners to review their current exposures and to assist in identifying additional risks they may encounter. As an active member in CREW Detroit and MiCIA, Amanda enjoys spending time networking and getting to know other members of the business community. When she is not helping clients analyze their business’s risk, she can often be found reading insurance policy forms and discussing complex situations with friends over dinner. Often called an “insurance nerd”, she embraces that title with pride. Amanda is proud to be a millennial in the insurance industry and can often be found recruiting other young professionals into the industry she loves!
